Alt-tabbing through life

Morning coffee incomplete without news on the web

One headline to another, interests very soon ebb


The lunch is incomplete without a SMS from the cell

No attention whatsoever to food’s taste or smell


Afternoon coffee incomplete without a status update

Within minutes replies to it is what we await


Dinner remains incomplete without a chat on GTalk

No catching up on the day, no post-dinner walk


No time to sit and just ponder, gazing at the sky

We’re busy Alt-Tabbing through life, not living it, just letting it go by……….
